In medieval times a baron’s home was his castle. Of a winter’s evening he might sit in his great chair in front of the fire enjoying its warmth. Above the fireplace the head of a great stag would hang, its antlers gleaming in the fire’s glow. Although these days we might prefer to see our stags alive and in the wild, we can still sit by the fire and enjoy these comfortable slipper socks with their Stag Horn Cables emblazoning the foot.
Knit toe- up on a circular needle and using the magic loop technique, they are fun to make and incorporate the new architecture of the Sweet Tomato heel discovered by Cat Bordhi and featured in her recently published e-book, Cat’s Sweet Tomato Heel Socks.
